I have a faint memory of someone on this forum posting a similar issue where the pads needed replacement after very low mileage. Think it was just a bug/error with the sensors/idrive reading and reporting wrong.
Don't know what mine says... gonna have a look. Guess it could be accurate aswell, depends on how you drive. I strongly doubt the cruise control has anything to do with it.
ovekvam, impressed with a set of pads making it through one season?! wtf
with alot of track-days sure, but not under normal driving.
